Spring Pest Control Tips

With spring just a few weeks away you are likely excited about getting outdoors, particularly if you have a green thumb. It’s nearly time to restore the beauty and splendor of your property with a gorgeously manicured lawn and lush landscaping.

If there’s a downside to the start of spring, it’s that with the flowers blooming, birds chirping and warmer weather comes unwanted pests and critters. Being proactive now, at the start of the season, can give you the upper hand in preventing unwanted guests on your lawn or inside your home. Common pests that return in early spring include bees, ants, mosquitos, and rodents.

Here are a few pest control tips for a bug-free yard and home this spring.

Treat the perimeter of your home
Spraying insecticides is the first line of defense against insects.

Seal your home
Cracks and gaps in your home’s foundation make it easy for unwanted critters and insects to get inside.

Remove standing water
Any water source close to the foundation of your home will attract pests, so it’s in your best interest to fix leaks and correct areas of standing water that might attract them to your home.

Keep things clean
Don’t slack on yard maintenance. Yard debris, such as leaves and branches, can attract insects, especially ticks.

Even if you don’t have a pest problem now, pest prevention is always cheaper and easier than having to find and remove them once they’ve infested your home.
